Charles Robert Jenkins, 77, deserted the U.S. Army in 1965 and crossed into North Korea, where he was held for decades. “In North Korea, I lived a dog’s life,” he said in LA Times interview. “Ain’t nobody live good in North Korea. Nothing to eat. No running water. No electricity. In the wintertime you freeze — in my bedroom, the walls were covered in ice.” Maybe, three American detainees in North Korea are suffering like him now.
